An international executioner flew from California to Melbourne to kill a man he'd never met. Police have the evidence, but he will never return to Australia to stand trial. Now he sits in a cell in Vietnam facing his own execution. He could save his life if he gave evidence against the men who hired him, but refuses, knowing "The Brotherhood" would kill his family in revenge.

While we go about our daily lives international criminals can order the murder of the guilty...and the innocent...anywhere in the world.

This is society's underbelly.
